  1. Place a large saucepan over a medium heat. Fry the chorizo for 8-10 mins until just crispy, turning once. Add the oil to the pan along with the onion and cook for 5 mins to soften. Stir in the garlic, celery and paprika and cook for 1 min more. ​ 
  2. Add the potatoes to the pan and toss together to get them coated in the flavoured oil. Add the stock pot along with 600ml boiling water, chopped tomatoes, tomato paste and bay leaf. Bring to a simmer and cook for 10 mins. Add the beans to the stew, stir well and cook for another 5 mins. Stir in the greens; cook for 3 mins or until the greens and potatoes are cooked through.​ 
  3. Remove the stew from the heat and allow to cool for a few mins before spooning into large bowls to serve. Top with chopped parsley, if you like.​

​Freezing and defrosting guidelines

​Cook the stew as per recipe but omit the greens and parsley, and allow to cool completely before covering and freezing for up to 3 months. Allow to defrost completely before bringing to a simmer and cooking the greens as per recipe. Scatter with parsley to serve.
